London: Rafael Nadal wrote off his sensational Wimbledon loss to Lukas Rosol as an accident of sport and challenged the Czech, ranked 100 in the world, to make any further headway in the tournament.
World number two Nadal, the 2008 and 2010 champion, and 11-time Grand Slam title winner, suffered one of the greatest shocks in tennis history against a man whose only five other Wimbledon visits had ended in first round defeats in qualifying.
"I played against an inspired opponent and I am out. That's all. It's not a tragedy. It's only a tennis match," said Nadal, who had played in the last five Grand Slam finals.
